Top 5 Things You Can Do While In the Great Outdoors

Publicado por:

Unfortunately, people are not always good stewards of our natural world. Overfishing and overhunting can disrupt a habitat’s balance. Mountain bikes and horseback riders can alter the landscape. Even hiking and camping leave their mark. Following are our Top 5 guidelines that will help you have fun outdoors! Every outdoor enthusiast should try to follow while enjoying the best that nature has to offer.

1) Plan ahead. Camping or hiking responsibly requires knowing the environment you’ll be occupying – including marked trails, designated campgrounds, animals you may encounter, and more. Be prepared!

2) Stay the course. If you’re hiking in a muddy area, it’s easy to create secondary paths as you try to sidestep the wet stuff. Avoid this by walking on rocks or logs. If you have no other choice, stay on the designated trail and walk through the mud. Use an existing campsite. Don’t create a new campsite when you can use an existing one.

3) Keep fires small. Most areas have rules about how big your campfire can be. You can minimize your fire by using smaller pieces of wood.

4) Think reusable and clean up. Pack your food in reusable, collapsible containers instead of taking along disposable boxes and cans, and leave your campsite clean for the next group.

5) Don’t bother wildlife. Aside from the fact that some animals can hurt you, you could also disrupt mating or nesting seasons. Feeding wildlife is always a bad idea. Once wild animals associate food with humans, a dangerous situation is created for both groups.
